Guidelines for Completing Assessment 3
Like Assessment 1 and Assessment 2, you require TWO documents to complete this assessment. These are:
- The original Assessment instruction sheet (under the Assessment button for the course);
- The Case Study document, subsequently provided through the Discussion Forum.
For this exercise, you need to imagine that you have been asked to produce a particular document on behalf of the (fictional) company named in the Case Study document.
The Case Study document provides the information you will require, to in-fill the fields of the various ‘material topics’ to be covered in the report.
You should treat this document as if it was a set of notes that you wrote, based upon chats with colleagues and your own background research. Thinking of the Case Study document in this way will allow you to see that not everything appearing in the document should make its way into the report. Some events described can appear into the report, but with some editing on your part, to produce suitably ‘impersonal’ language suitable to report-writing.
Everything you put into the report, should be designed to either:
- Place the company in a good light;
- MBA 402
Suggested Template for Assessment 3: MBA 402
Sustainability Report using the GRI Reporting Guidelines
Your assignment should have a report-like structure:
Overview (if using): Briefly state that this is the GRI Sustainability Report for Company X (name case study company). Use a few sentences to describe the main business and market for the company.
(Alternatively, place this information at the end of the Introduction, below).
Table of Contents (provide at your own discretion, if desired)
[Any report introduction generally includes some Background information to provide context for what follows. There should be a section that mentions Methodology. This means the methods taken to gather information, and to analyse it.]
Background: Provide a short discussion (1-2 short paragraphs) that mentions the three varieties of sustainability impacting a business. Use these paragraphs to show that you have been doing reading on the topic of Business Sustainability. Provide some reasons why modern businesses should care about their sustainability record, and why they should decide to provide a Sustainability report.
[What you write here allows you to use some in-text referencing, to demonstrate background reading undertaken for this assessment.]
Methodology: Provide a short (1-2 paragraph) discussion of the GRI reporting standards. Support the discussion using in-text citations, to show your background reading on GRI reporting.
[Your methodology should mention the GRI Global reporting standard for Sustainability; what they are and why they are used. You might choose to list the 9 material topics for your report – or leave this to emerge across the report].
